“It's often safer to be in chains than to be free.” – Franz Kafka

The cuckoo is one of the more interesting migrants in the animal kingdom. It spends part of the year in sunny Africa, but nests and breeds in Europe among other places. Cuckoos appropriate the nests of other birds to lay eggs. The lark or dove in turn does not recognize the egg threat and even feeds the cuckoo chicks after they hatch. Eventually, the larger aggressive cuckoo chicks either evict or kill any host offspring.  more>>>

GMD's use of the cuckoo metaphor is a perfect choice. NER should organize a competition this month for the best choice for a metaphor for the attitude and behavior of the West European nations sponsoring Muslim migration - my choice is the frog swimming out to carry a tarantula spider on its back.

NB. in the interests of full disclosure, I must admit that I pinched the analogy from Dr. D's excellent reflections on real birds in a previous issue. And AFP, methinks a culture the rejects wine, women, song, and hearty pork bangers is not much of a culture at all. Culinary intolerance is the one sin God will not forgive. Beer and BLT made Britain and Boston possible.

fine missive from the New world, and damn right about the food and booze too. Its probably not a coincidence that the Koran was first translated into English during Cromwell's Protectorate. He wasn't all bad (I sense your Irish shoulders are broad enough to take that!)but phew, what a bore. One book was certainly enough for him
